In 1988, a small group of people gathered together to fast and pray. Longing to experience more of God and a greater walk with him. The ultimate outcome was the birth of Living Waters Christian Fellowship. What began in a small duplex is now a vibrant church that is passionate about declaring the good news of Jesus Christ and the message of the Kingdom of God. We love God, We love to worship him, We love to encourage one another and empower each other for the advancing of God's Kingdom in Clinton and surrounding area's. It is our hearts desire for all to come to have a powerful personal relationship with God.

What we believe:
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired, verbally and completely inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and life.
We believe in one sovereign God, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, unbounded in power and measureless in love; that God is the source of all creation and that through the immediate exercise of His power all things came into being.
We believe that God the Father is the author of eternal salvation, having loved the world and given His Son for its redemption.
We believe that Jesus the Messiah was eternally pre-existent and is co-equal with God the Father; that He took on Himself the nature of man through the virgin birth so that He possesses both divine and human natures. We believe in His sinless life and perfect obedience to the Law; in His atoning death, burial, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, high-priestly intercession and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son; that He was active in the creation of all things and continues to be so in providence; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and that He regenerates, sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, illumines, guides and bestows His gifts upon all believers.
We believe that God created man in His image; that because of the disobedience of our first parents at the Garden of Eden they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants, separated from God, suffer physical and spiritual death and that all human beings, with the exception of Jesus the Messiah, are sinners by nature and practice. We believe that Jesus the Messiah died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that all who believe in Him are justified, not by any works of righteousness they have done, but by His perfect righteousness and atoning blood and that there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.
We believe the body of Messiah is comprised of Jews and Gentiles who have accepted Jesus as the promised deliverer (Ephesians 2:11-3:6). Gentiles who have come to faith in Messiah Jesus are fellow heirs with Messianic Jews in the kingdom of God. Together we are called to be that One new Man, that One flock, under One Shepherd, showing forth His glory.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
1. God is love
2. You can do all things through Christ Jesus
3. The blood of Jesus paid for everything
4. We are called and chosen to go forth and make Him known
We are passionate about seeing God’s kingdom come in all the earth. The great commission specifically calls us to go and make disciples of all nations. As a result of this we seek to partner with local churches and ministries both at home and around the world.
Our heart for Israel, the Jewish people.
In following Paul’s mandate: “to the Jew first and also to the Greek,” (Rom. 1:16) we endeavour to bless Israel both materially and spiritually by supporting the ministries of Messianic believers in Israel. Paul’s letter to the Romans also says: “…salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous,” and “that by the mercies you have received, they (Israel) too may now receive mercy.” In God’s infinite wisdom we, Gentiles, have been called to be instrumental in Messiah’s return to His people Israel. We are looking forward to and praying for the “acceptance” of Israel. For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? (Rom. 11:15) Jesus, the Messiah and King of Israel, is called to sit on the throne of David, ruling and reigning over the whole house of Israel, including over those who have been grafted in. (Rom. 11) The full breakthrough of the Kingdom of God awaits the return of His people Israel to their Messiah. Then truly the Temple of God will arise, built of Jew and Gentile together, filled with the glory of God, so that the knowledge of the glory of God will cover this earth as the waters do cover the sea. (Hab. 2:14)
